When 9-year-old Sawyer Rummelhart died from an aggressive childhood cancer, his family asked that people donate to Camp Okizu, an Oncology Camp in Northern California. Camp Okizu provides an opportunity for normal childhood fun to kids touched by cancer-- not just the children who are fighting the diseases, but their siblings, too. And their parents. Sawyer's trip to Okizu in November was a precious time for him and his family. It's their hope that more and more kids and their families will have the same opportunity to find rest, fun and support at Camp Okizu. At the link below, you can donate to Camp Okizu in Sawyer's name.
John Bell, who serves on the board of Camp Okizu, a camp for kids with cancer and their families, has joined Paul to discuss the camp's 35 years of support.
Okizu is more than a summer camp. They work with numerous partners, from volunteers to national medical institutions, to reach and support those they serve, all year-round and whenever they are needed.
